  • To conduct methodological research that can underpin robust research design and data analysis
  • To produce evidence that can improve understanding of the aetiology, management and prevention of disease, including complex chronic physical and mental disorders
  • To produce evidence that can improve health service organisation and delivery
  • To disseminate our research outputs to the international scientific community, to practitioners, to policy-makers, and to health service users
